No crap? Well they must build them better than I thought. I figured 5.56 would blow the guts out o it lol. Sad thing is I can't buy it yet and I'm scared I will never be able to git it bc of the election.

Any silencer chambered for. 22 Cal should be able to handle the highest pressures for that caliber unless it specifically says rimfire only.

I just looked it up. It said rimfire. But if I get one in 5.56 I could use it on the .22lr?

If its for 556 then yes you can. I wouldn't advise it though because the results wont be the same or as good as you expect.

you can but you will ruin your rifle supressor in a few thousand rounds. leading is a HUGE issue with nonjacketed bullets and supressors.

centerfire suppressors are typically not able to be taken apart for routine cleaning as they dont need to be cleaned. the exception is 22lr suppressors. the better ones are easily taken apart about every 1000 rounds for a good de-leading.

they gunk up FAST. ive got several thousand rounds through my sparrow and being able to clean it is a must.

while you can shoot 22lr through a centerfire supressor its not wise. about the same thing as buying a zr1 vette brand new then shooting it with a machinegun to see the holes.
